When you're caretaking someone, and you feel victimized and resentful...and the people you're taking care of are demanding (children, elderly parents) then questioning your stressful thoughts can be awesome. This is how to quit arguing with reality.
Having a full range of emotions and feelings is very normal. You may still feel like you get stabbed in the gut because of what someone says. But this is temporary, of course. What's happening if you allow your own reactions....and then see what you're thinking about those other people, where they need to change in order for you to be peaceful.
Dropping the intensity towards self-criticism, or attack of the self, is difficult. If you find yourself locked into anger towards yourself, move your attention over to thoughts about others, so you can really look deeply at your judgments towards other people instead. Then, when you can question your thoughts, you might find even greater insight. Violence towards the self doesn't work.
